If you need to harvest a little money this Samhain season, try this spell.
You will need:
- 1 small (not miniature)-sized pumpkin
- The amount of money you need, written on a piece of plain white paper in
- green ink (if you don't know how much you need, give a rough figure, but
don't make the request outrageous - the universe works to our needs, not
necessarily on our wants)
- 1 bag fresh dirt
- 7 dimes
- 7 pumpkin seeds from this pumpkin
- 7 ounces of rain water or water from a stream (no tap or bottled water)
- Lodestone, Optional
Cut the top off the pumpkin in a scallop design (to aid the flow of money to you). Clean out the pumpkin. (Save the seed for other magical work.) Remember to keep 7 seeds for this spell. Place the pumpkin in the refrigerator until Halloween Eve. One-half hour before Halloween Eve (not after), bring out the pumpkin, the piece of paper with the dollar amount you need written on it, the dirt, dimes, seed, and the water. Place the paper in the bottom of the pumpkin. Pour in the dirt. With the end of the pencil, make seven holes in the dirt in a circular pattern (keep the holes at least one inch apart). Hold the first dime in your hand and think about the amount of money you need. (Important, do not think negative thoughts about the money you need, no matter how desperate you are.) Keep the dime in your hand until it grows warm and you feel good inside. With the pencil, push the first dime in the hole that coincides with 12 o'clock. Follow the same procedure going clockwise, with the other six dimes. (if you happen to have a lodestone hanging around, bury it in the middle of the dirt.) Now, starting at the 12 o'clock and going clockwise, pour 1 ounce of water into each hole. When you are finished, hold your hands over the pumpkin and say:
"One dime for beginnings
One dime for drawing
One dime for growth
One dime for stability
One dime for banishing negativity
One dime for luck
One dime to seal the spell.
So mote it be!"
Bury the pumpkin on your property the following night one half hour before midnight (no later).
(you can tailor the apple spell for prosperity, protection or spiritual prayer--or you can simply use the apple candles to decorate the table at your next Halloween Party)
You will need:
1 fresh apple as large and as glossy as you can find
- An apple corer
- 1 white taper candle
At 15 minutes before midnight on Halloween Eve hold the apple in your hands and ask Spirit to bless the fruit. Hum to yourself thinking of bringing love into your life (but not a specific person. you know the drill) Continue to hum until the apple gets warm in your hands. Insert the apple corer into the stem of the apple and take out the core. Make sure not to make the hole bigger that the circumference of the candle. Hold the candle in your hands and hum again, thinking of bringing love toward you until, like the apple, the candle gets warm in your hands. Put the candle in the apple and say:
"Great Mother Goddess
Bring love to this heart of mine.."
Allow the candle to burn until it goes out but keep a watchful eye on it to make sure accidents don't happen (personal note... I like to keep mine in the sink or tub when I have to let them burn out.)
